How many people did god kill?

I got to thinking about this and decided to go through and take as close a number as I could, using ONLY the scriptural references where a specific number is listed.

Let's see the total killed in the name of god and mind you, with gods approval.

After this, stop and think for a second. Do you want to be part of a faith that worships a mass murderer?

Without further ado, let's get the totals started:

EX 32:27-29 With the Lord's approval, the Israelites slay 3000 men

 NU 16:35 A fire from the Lord consumes 250 men

NU 16:49 A plague from the Lord kills 14,700 people

JS 8:22-25 With the Lord's approval, Joshua utterly smites the people of Ai, killing 12,000 men and women, so that there were none who escaped

JG 1:4 With the Lord's support, Judah defeats 10,000 Canaanites at Bezek

JG 3:29 The Israelites kill about 10,000 Moabites

JG 3:31 (A restatement.) Shamgar killed 600 Philistines with an oxgoad

JG 15:15 Samson slays 1000 men with the jawbone of an ass

JG 20:43-48 The Israelites smite 25,000+ "men of valor" from amongst the Benjamites, "men and beasts and all that they found," and set their towns on fire

1SA 4:10 The Philistines slay 30,000 Israelite foot soldiers

1SA 18:27 David murders 200 Philistines, then cuts off their foreskins

2SA 8:5 David slew 22,000 Syrians

2SA 8:13 David slew 18,000 Edomites in the valley of salt and made the rest slaves

2SA 10:18 David slew 47,000+ Syrians

2SA 24:15 The Lord sends a pestilence on Israel that kills 70,000 men

1KI 20:29-30 The Israelites smite 100,000 Syrian soldiers in one day. A wall falls on 27,000 remaining Syrians

2KI 1:10-12 Fire from heaven comes down and consumes fifty men

2KI 14:5, 7 Amaziah kills his servants and then 10,000 Edomites

2KI 19:35 An angel of the Lord kills 185,000 men

2CH 13:17 500,000 Israelites are slaughtered

The death toll attributed to god, and mind you this in ONLY where a specific number is listed is: 1,085,900 people murdered in gods name. This does of course NOT include the killing of all the first Born's multiple times in the bible, the 'great flood' where more than likely MILLIONS more were killed. This is ONLY the atrocities committed where a specific number was listed.

This is just plain sick!

Over ONE MILLION murdered in gods name and this person is whom thousands choose to worship every day and encourage you to worship?

Not me.

I can't do it. I cannot bring myself to worship a MURDERER.


  1. But this god is onmibenevolent! He is all good. He only kills when people don't obey him, so that makes it okay!


  2. I only call em' as I see em'. If an omnibenevolent being decides to be a mass murderer, I am going to call a 'spade a spade'. If the christian right doesn't like it. BITE ME! hehe
